There is something about small, famous museums that draw people from afar, and this is one of the state's gems. Maybe it is because it was the dwelling place of Jane Long, "The Mother of Texas," or maybe because of the historical ranch activity.

On the grounds you will be able to view the 1840s Long-Smith home as well as the 1883 Victorian residence of Texas Congressman John Moore.

Everyone with a sweet tooth or an interest in industrial processes can tour the facilities to see how sugar is cultivated, processed and packaged. The company got its name in an unusual way. The original owner visited Manhattan and stayed in the luxurious Imperial Hotel. Impressed with the property, he decided to adopt the name for his company. A few years later the city (Sugar land) was named in honor of the plant.
